Are you interested in engaging young family members in the work of your foundation? Bring a small group of your family’s adults and youth (ages 8-21) together with other philanthropic families for a Sunday afternoon of fun, exploration, and learning! 
This is a wonderful opportunity to meet other families with similar interests, learn more about who you are as a philanthropic family, and have candid conversations between generations on how you can support one another.
You’ll leave with a network of peers who are engaging youth in philanthropy, an understanding of your developing philanthropic identity, and insights from rich conversations across the generations that can be used back home and with other family or foundation friends.      
The session will be facilitated by SCG member Annie Hernandez, Executive Director of the Frieda C. Fox Family Foundation and a co-founder of Youth Philanthropy Connect. Annie is an expert in engaging youth in family philanthropy efforts.
The session will also serve as a sneak peek focus group that will explore rolePLAY, a new tool that leverages play to illuminate your inner leader and what opportunities and challenges you face.  rolePLAY is being developed by 21/64, a nonprofit consulting practice specializing in next generation and multi-generational philanthropy. This is one of six exclusive focus groups happening around the country, and insights collected at this session will help hone the tool for final production.  
The design and development of 21/64’s rolePLAY tool has been partially funded by SCG member The Frieda C. Fox Family Foundation and their project Youth Philanthropy Connect.
